THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL Is tho only newspaper la Balem whose circulation is guaranteed by the , Audit Bureau Of Circulation CLOTHING NEEDED FOR REFUGEES. The week ot March 24 to 31 is to be devoted by the Red Cross to the collection of cast-off American garments to be sent to the refugees in Europe. This should be hailed by every housekeeper in the land, not only as an opportunity for worthy charity, but for ridding herself of the burden of accumulated wearing apparel. These are not the times for packing away anything usable; there are too many needy ones all about. And these are not times to practice a penny-wise, pound-foolish economy, wasting time and energy in remarking what might better be replaced. There are too many real things to be done. . ... It is also of the greatest importance right now that the people in the, United States do all the buying they can to stimulate trade and prevent hard times. So it is doubly worth while to let the old go where it will do much good, and buy new to help business in our own country and our own community. Anything which possibly can be spared, and which would be suited to hard wearing conditions should go into the Red Cross barrel. To dispose thus of the accu mulations of clothing which would otherwise be unused or unnecessarily used is to get the full benefit of that quality of mercy which blesseth him that gives and him that receives. , . f . .

A sample is given in the collection being taken up to build a livestock exposition pavilion in Portland, when as a matter of fact Portland people never subscribed a dollar for anything to be built or located in any other part of the state. Many newspapers are very sore, too, because the people of Port land passed a low, initiated by C. S. Jackson, of the Ore gon Journal, fixing legalrates in all state papers, except those in Portland, thus interfering with matters of no concern to them, and backing up the petty spite work of the Portland publisher. Naturally the State Chamber of Commerce idea is having pretty hard sledding, because the public well knows that if the headquarters of the chamber was to be located in Salem, or any other up state town, Portland people would not put up a dollar to assist the movement. - The so-called reconstruction plan, under which $5, 000,000 bonds will be voted by Oregon, needs reconstruc tion worse than anything else we know of. John A. Green, former president of the National Re tail Grocers Association, thinks the day will come when business done on credit must go. Says he, "Monuments have been erected to the philanthropist who gave a few dollars to the poor; but never a retail grocer who went bankrupt giving credit to his customers." The retail grocers do deserve a place in song and story as the benefactors of their kind; for they have as a class tided more unfortunate families over periods of financial stringency than any other body of citizens. It is a matter of shame that this privilege has been abused so notoriously, and it is no wonder that the ten dencv to place groceries on a cash basis is growing steadily. As a basis for credit, if it is extended at all. Mr Green suggests that the grocer inform himself of the cus tomer's salary and confine himself to 20 per cent of that sum. This is a suggestion made by a man long in tne business, and if he says that a family spending more than 20 per cent of its income in groceries cannot be considered .1 ;. ' J.L nnanciany sounu, it is wurui consmemig. If more people practiced just this careful apportion ment of expenses to income it would check the tendency to waste in buying and using, and put credit on a basis where there would be fewer distracted debtbors, and fewer gro cers deserving tablets in the Hall of Fameiu ) ' ' ui iii - i r p . -The navv Distinguished Service Medal was unan imously chosen, according to Secretary Daniels.

I look on strife as out of place; it is absurd and a dis grace, and sane men seldom need it; but I would like to cumb the frame ot that galoot who signs his name so no one else can read it. I think all men while dwelling here should hand out smiles and words of cheer, and sing and dance and fiddle; but I would like to use a club upon the maple headed dub whose signature's a riddle. As tran sient guests we tread our path and every sign of spite and wrath we ought to check and muzzle; but I'd be glad if I might slay the drooling idiotic jay whose signature's a puzzle. This sort of fellow has his gall; I hate his fancy, swirling crawl, I simply can't abide it. I wonder why a liuman gink will fill his fountain pen with ink, and then get up and ride it? Oh, does he think he'll make a hit by throwing chirographic fit with asinine endeavor? And loes he think that folks will say, "Beshrew us, this gym nastic jay must be absurdly clever." My time is worth two bones a day; I need it all to earn my pay, and I rear up and grumble, and take the shotgun from the floor when I run up against the bore whose signature's a jumble. u. a ite vw i-V 4V- riTAPTKTt XXXIX. MR. FREDERICK OFFERS TO BE BARBARA'S FRIEND. "I want to bo your friend, Mrs. Forbes if you ever should need one," Mr, Frederick was saying, "I am a bluff man, but the'ro may como a time when you will be able to make me of uso. Will you promiso mo that if thoro is such a timo, that you will send for mo!" ho smiled at iue, but his eyes woro serious. 1 almost laughed, it was so like ome of tho stories I had rend. Was Mr. Fredorick in love with met I dismissod the thought at once. There hud been absolutely nothing in his behavior to suggest such a thing; and I blushed hot ly at my egotistical thought. But why should he bo melodramatic that was what it iipcpured to mo. I lausrhed a lit tle eiubarassed laugh, then replied: "1 can't imagine a time when- I should need you, anyone suve Mr. PAYROLL money docs more for a community than any other kind.

"That address will always reach mo. A letter or wire there will find me wherever I em." ' I made no reply. None was neoded. But after Mr, Fredorick had loft me at home, and bade mo good-bye because he was leaving town that afternoon, I de cided that he had come to sco me that morning simply to say that if I needed a friend, he would sorve me. Again I asked myself "Why!" It seemed at this time that my life was mado up of interrogation points. I was continually asking the why of why of things but never getting an an wor. Neil came homo about three o'clock something so unusual for him, ta&t I foared ho was ill. His face had gone gray and haggard since the night bo fore. When 1 .commenced to fuss over him, he waved me aside, and said hoarsely: 'Tor heaven's sake, Bab, don't do that! I came homo because I needed rest. If you are going to rag me about anything, I'll go back t0 the office." "I did not mean to rag you, dear. You loked tired and I felt anxious," I was conciliatory, at usual. "Well I am tired, dead tired. So tired I don't want to talk to you or anyone else." He threw himsolf opon the lounge in tho library and closed his eyes. But I knew he was not sleeping. A spasm would occasionally cross his face, and his hands were clenched un til the knuckles stood out white and sharp against the dark eover I had thrown over him. It was nearly two hours later when he rose, bathed and dressed for dinner. Ho was more liko himsolf, and when Tonko had brought him his evening pa per I ventured: "Isn't it dreadful about Payne Or tout" I could keep silence no longer. I must knew something of his interest in this man 's death. ' terrible. Poor Blanche. " "Did she appear to feel very badly!" Neil looked curiously at mo, as if he did not grasp my meaning.

Smith were Thursday circulating a numerously signed petition for the designation of a paved rood from Donald to the White school via the Leabo place, as part of the paved road from the Nowberg bridge to tho Pacific highway. It is claimed that it not only shortens the distance but that it will also servo mora people than any other route. The petition ds designed to change the route from tho tentatively desig nated route from Donald to Aurora via the Po tprFeller corners. The final designation of the road will be made by the mnrket roads committee in ple nary spssion. The people along the road tentatively designated claim that it will serve the IbvAt interests of more people than any other route. Hence it is plain that tho matter will havo to be threshed out before tho entire com mittee. Aurora Observer. LIEUT. RAGSDALE DIES Lieut. Irving L.

PmiJtnt Amrtcan Soeltly for Thiji It is well to remember at all times and especially in these days of economic re adj ust men t that tightfist edncss and thrift are not by any means f y 1 ad that barm J i rf" ..J can be done to i rr- mi 4u mirnrim lb , ) business if thrift is en couraged exclusively as a money-saving practice. 1 For more than a year and a half the business interests of the flonntry have been carrying heavy le;His. These bus:lciis have beca borne with splendid loyalty and unselfishness. War-time economics made necessary the elimin tii of many foms of spending in order that the man-power and mate rial resources of the nation could be placed solidly behind the war pre gram. These practices constituted . the thrift of war savings anil no one can sny that the people of America did cot lucnsure up to the necessary re quircmeuU. To-day w have entirely different problems to fuee, and, in some re- -spects, they are more complicated thtn during the war period. The - gvivrrnmt-nt must be supported in its financial needs, and, at the same time, ; it is essential that our rBerciiants and manufacturers tie prrrn the eneour ajcnjtnl of consistently liberal patron ogc There are thousands of small business firms that have just manage to survive the war period. It is right that they be given all possible com sideration from the buying public ami money hoarding is not jcoing to hel them. There is just as much thrift in buy. ing wisely as there is in saving wisely, These are all matters of individual a justment. Legitimate business, tin arts, the sciencesi education and whjlesome forms of diversion art worthy of our financial support, and it is our -duty to enconragt them when we can afford to da sa If we are at a loss to de termine in our own minds whefher such and such a practice mipht be considered unthrifty, we can satisfy ourselves by determining whether it constitutes any form of waste. Any practice that is wasteful should be discouraRfd. But there art many forms of spendini that are thorough ly legitimate and desirable and should be encouraged bwause of the peneral good that will be accomplished by tkem. Such practices constitntr the greater thrift the broad, upbniMing thrift upon which the future develop ment of this nation depends. These statements should not be construed as being in any way antag onistic to tile faithful practices ot thrift tbat constitute the systematic saving of a portion of one's income. While the habit of saving moury is worthy of every encouragement, it is well to bear in mind that true thrift does not consist entirely of saving, and that in the ' administration of one's affairs the obligations one owe to general business' and to societ must be given due consideration.
